auliffe is challenging republican attorney general ken cuccinelli in a state that's growing fast and frequently changing party hands. kwame holman has our report on the contest, and its national implications. >> reporter: both parties are looking at virginia for clues about future elections. and that intrigue has brought a steady stream of national figures into the state for the homestretch. longtime party fundraiser and democratic candidate terry mcauliffe was joined on the trail this week by former president bill clinton. >> i want you to elect him governor because what happens in virginia is really important to this country. >> reporter: before that, mcauliffe received the endorsement of former secretary of state hillary clinton. >> supporting and voting for terry mcauliffe will make you proud of yourselves, of this commonwealth, and yes, of this country. >> reporter: virginia's attorney general republican ken cuccinelli has appeared in recent days with kentucky senator rand paul, a favorite of the tea party. >> we need champions and you need a governor who will stand up against an overbearing and ov

college poll hasterry mccoloradoive with a lead over ken cuccinelli. quinnipiac university finds mcallive with a smaller lead over the attorney general. no matter which poll you're looking at, this is so clear. social issues matter. and women could make the difference in this election. and, of course, turnout. now, according to quinnipiac, female voters in virginia backed mcallive over cuccinelli. the "washington post" finds the margin bigger with kuch necessarily trailing by what, 24 points among whelm.cuccinelli trailing by what, 24 points among whelm. this could be the reason. cuccinelli was one of three attorneys general who did not join a bipartisan push for reauthorization of the violence against women act. also cuccinelli was the first attorney general to sue the federal government over obama care, which expands access for women health care. he voted against a senate bill, stating that contraception is not abortion. he sponsored personhood bills, which would give legal rights to embryos from the moment of fertilization and potentially interfere with access to basic birth cont
challenger, ken cuccinelli. roanoke college finds mcauliffe with as much of a 15-point lead but quinnipiac poll has him leading by four points. in an e-mail sent to supporters thursday, mcauliffe made it very clear, don't get comfortable and don't sit this one out. mcauliffe wrote to his supporters, in off year elections like this when tea party voters turn out more reliably than democrats. for 45 years, the political party that controls the white house has lost our governor's race the next year. in 2009, fewer than 40% of virginia voters cast a ballot for governor, despite the fact that nearly 70% voted in the presidential election the year before. there's a lot at stake in the state of virginia, no question about it. ken cuccinelli has spent his entire career as an elected official, trying to roll back any progress on women's reproductive rights. cuccinelli's running mate for lieutenant governor, e.w. jackson, has clearly defined himself as an extremist home phone. folks, this is not an election day the country want to miss. get out and vote in virginia. joining me tonight for the "rapid
cuccinelli and chris christie has a wide lead over barbara buono. but virginia, new jersey say a lot of the ballots for the heart of the republican party. the clintons are really making virginia their territory. >> exactexactly. >> but it's going to show the difference between chris christie taking over a blue state and here we go with mcauliffe where ken cuccinelli could have run away with this race. >> this is like the bonapartes making maximillan emperor of mexico. this is a reach by the clintons. they take a guy, a good guy, mcauliffe, and put him into virginia. it's an extraordinary success. he's a very likeable guy but the clintons will get a lot of credit for this. this is the first big pin on the map. we've got virginia next time. >> do you think this is the tale of where the republican party is going and chris christie will become the national story? >> i have a dog in this race. i want the republican party to return to its roots. it will always have a very hard right part to it but i think it's got to rebuild its center. i think with christie they have a good shot at rebuil
. government shutdown. dangerous politics. first they gave us ken cuccinelli... and now mark obenshain for attorney general. obenshain voted to ban the birth control pill, and outlaw abortion, even for victims of rape and incest. and on gun safety, obenshain opposes comprehensive background checks to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the violently mentally ill. mark obenshain: a dangerously wrong turn for virginia. i'm mark herring, candidate for attorney general and i sponsored this ad. . >>> 5:15 on this tuesday morning. as i drive into work, i see more decorates and lights for halloween. the forecast is what everyone is excited about. >> it's going to be a pretty good halloween around here. going to be mild and generally dry. if you're in western maryland or western virginia, there's a better chance you'll see a shower or two but here in the metro, east of the blue ridge, i think our rain will hold off for the most part till overnight friday night and during the day on friday. so friday will be an unsettled day. maybe some stronger thunderstorms as there's a pretty good co
to you againics. the kentucky senator made those remarks while stumping for ken cuccinelli. president obama heads to the old dominion state this weekend to campaign for terry mcauliffe. things are looking good for the democrat's hope to reclaim the governor's mansion. mcauliffe opened up a double digit lead over cuccinelli. but it's the gender gap catching the most attention. the candidates are running about even among male voters but cuccinelli trails mcauliffe by 34 points. and rick ramsey is sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison. the republican was convicted in june of extortion, bribery and fraud. the new fbi director is making changes to on the job training. income agents have to visit martin luther king memorial in washington. he said the move is a warning of the dangers of becoming untethered to oversight and accountability. women of the supreme court finally have the painting they deserve. artists unveiled it on monday at the smithsonian. it features the current female justice and sandra day o'connor. and that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> joining me now for our
of women. so i'm particularly offended by ken cuccinelli. cuccinelli wants to make all abortion illegal ... ... even in cases of rape and incest. ... even to protect a woman's health. i want a governor who's focused on schools and creating jobs, not someone who wants to do my job. who's ken cuccinelli to interfere in the lives of women across virginia? >>> boston finished in the seller of the al east last year. and now that it is all over, they are free to announce that they will be hiring a new manager. his hiring was widely reported earlier. now, they will come to the team after four years with the diamondbacks, replacing 70-year- old johnson who retired. he's the fifth manager since they came back in d.c. in '05. frightening moments on the flight this week as they needed to make an emergency landing in the remote town of alaska because they had an engine warning message in the cockpit. nobody hurt there. they also sent another plane up there. they were headed to san francisco for tokyo. >> it's a stormy halloween for texas and throughout the midwest. even into the southwest. as we ne
putting terry mcauliffe over cuccinelli by 20 points. women preferring mcauliffe by 24 points. but then two days ago, a new poll released which shows a much, much closer contest for virginia governor. in the poll, he's still in the lead but only by four points now. for a candidate who has nod led a poll outright since he led exactly one back in mid july, ken cuccinelli being down by four in october represents an epic surge, a cuccinelli surge which sounds like an fcc violation. and he might actually be closing the gap. what does that mean? john stanton is joining us washington bureau chief at buzz feed. thank you for being here tonight. >> good to be here. >> do you see a way that ken cuccinelli surprises everyone and scratches out a win here? >> yeah, sure. if his staff lets him out of the box they're keeping him in, yes, sure, i think that would allow him to start talking and say things that would probably hurt his candidacy. other than some major gaffe on his part, no, i don't think, he's looking at a win at this point. >> at this point, so much of the attention on sort of
cuccinel cuccinelli. >> the whole country is waiting for your choice. >> an extreme faction of the republican party, they're willing to hijack the entire party, the country, the economy. >> we want more leaders like your next governor, ken cuccinelli. therveths don't come better than chris christie. >> they try to discern things. >> there are very real consequences when you operate ideologically. >> does ted cruz stand out to you? >> put five red necks on a mower. >> i'm being unfairly targeted by a bunch of hacks and haters. if dueling were legal in kentucky it would be a challenge. >> the last five years have not been a great time. >> a jumble of unfocused noise out of touch with the things you care about. ♪ like a song you hear that lingers in your ear ♪ ♪ but you can't forget from sundown ♪ ♪ >> this week marks one year since the 2012 presidential election and if this is the annual checkup, it's largely the president's health care law that's going through a major stress test. and right now, the white house is reaching out for support in the face of continuous o
cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relationships are immoral, wants to ban abortions with no exception, and once said it's possible the president was born in kenya. and he's plunging in the polls. 12 points behind. so why is that? president obama was in virginia over the weekend with the answer. >> you've seen on extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they're willing to hijack the economy and the country and grind to a halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. now -- >> the extremists are hijacking the entire party and one year later they haven't learned anything. joining me now are joan walsh and cynthia tucker. thanks for joining me. >> good to be here, reverend. >> joan, the president talked about hijacking the country. a year later, they did not learn anything. >> it's been a lost year for the republican party. and we're really feeling it as we sit and watch what's going on in virginia. they've nominated somebody who is just a total extremist. they're blocking action on immigration reform, so they're doing nothin
auliffe is several points ahead of his republican rival, ken cuccinelli. the question is what it will lock like on november 5th. he brought in the big dog, long time friend and former president you may know by the name of bill clinton. boost turn out particularly among african-american voters in college towns. on sunday, clinton kicked off a four-day, nine-city tour of the state with mcoffive. casting cuccinelli as divicive. he urged democrats not to take anything for granted. >> the one political virtue of extremism is this. if you can really get people all hot and bothered and their inside is in knots, full of anger and steam coming out of their ears instead of a light bulb going off in their brains, they will vote. they will show up every time. >> republicans inside washington run against health care and republicans outside washington run against washington, democrats everywhere are running against the tea party. >> just recently my opponent, ken cuccinelli was campaigning at a gathering of his supporters with ted cruz. he refused to stand up for virginia and against ted cruz's shut down str
's the front-runner right now. president didn't waste any time linking ken cuccinelli to the national tea party. >> you've seen an extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they are willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. if you embrace the very politics that led to this shutdown, i guarantee you it's not in the rear view mirror of voters in virginia they remember. they understand that that is not how you govern and that is not how you move america forward. >> cuccinelli's campaign predicted president obama's visit would energize be republican voters outraged over the obama care rollout exchanges. terry mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by 12 points. >> that's a big gap. >> that's massive. >> we'll see. okay. are we going to go to toronto or should we wait until little center i think we'll do it after the break. you all haven't been that well behaved. >> let's smoke. >> no. let's not. that's bad. >> help me out, willie. >> terry wins this race. christi
race getting tighter. ken cuccinelli behind terry mccaulliffe. is any of this a coincidence? what do you make of all of these crosscurrents? >> the shutdown hurt cuccinelli. no doubt about it. a lot of government employees, contractors in virginia but at the same time this obama care website bedbackal is hurting mccauliffe. we have seen most of the polls showing him well ahead and then it's starteniing to tighten. they think that he has this thing and that cuccinelli is not worth to show up at the polls so republicans feel like they could make a comeback here. it's a tough road for cuccinelli no doubt about it. that as you mentioned is why democrats are bringing out big guns to make sure people show up at the polls. >> you think about this. if it's a shutdown that adversely hit republican cuccinelli in this case talking about a lot of government workers, they have very good health plans for many of them. would they be as adversely affected by this health care thing as we're lead to believe and benefits for cuccinelli could be quite limited. >> there is that element. if you have lost
a speech in support of ken cuccinelli. and the speech he gave seems to have been plagiarized from the wikipedia page on gatacca. it was a weird top nick a governor's speech to begin. what is weirder is to be a republican candidate for president which is what he is trying to do anne and thinking you can lift speeches from wikipedia as you are doing that. he traveled to lynchburg, virginia. his speech was about being anti-abortion. ken cuccinelli being anti-abortion and the theme he used he said, people who are pro choice on the issue of abortion are like the evil autocratic state in the movie gatacca they want to kill off anyone whose genes aren't adequate. therefore vote for ken cuccinelli. it was kind of weird. >> in the movie gattacca, in the not too distance future genetic place a primary role in determining your social class. >> the weird line in the not too distance future eugenics is common and. the line is almost ver bait in the entry on wikipedia. that's what rand paul said. and looks like it is not a coincidence. check this out. this later in the wikipedia sbrichl a descr
there running against former state senator and attorney general ken cuccinelli. now according to the virginia public access project, mcauliffe has raised more than $35 million. that's nearly double cuccinelli's total but he is tauping to rally for -- hoping to rally virginia conservatives campaigning against the president's health care plan and for gun rights. >> i never want to see another newtown or aurora, virginia tech, ever again. my opponent likes to say that i got an f. from the nra. i don't care what grade i got from the nra. >> i believe the most important thing we can do is be much more aggressive in addressing mental health needs across our society. because it's nearly impossible to find the trouble before it happens. >> we have got to stop this attack on women, we have got to stop this attack on gay virginians. we cannot be putting walls up around virginia. >> it is freezing companies in place. >> reporter: that's ken talking about the president's health care plan and its flawed rollout. we know one month in, expectations have not reached what folks -- were hoping it would. the su
in new jersey and ken cuccinelli in virginia, the two republicans in the running have a lot to tell us about just what kind of republican can get elected these days. now, on the one hand, you have christie, who, if recent polls showing him clobbering his democratic opponent, barbara what's her name by a 19-point margin are any indication, it's the kind who wins elections. correction, the kind of republican who can win elections in a blue state that gave president obama 58% of the vote in 2012. now, on paper, chris christie is as conservative as they come. opposition to reproductive rights? check. he defunded planned parenthood and refused to fund new jersey state family planning centers. standing strong against marriage equality? check. he recently backed down from his efforts to block same-sex marriage from moving the forward in new jersey, but only after a long, long fight to keep it from happening. advancing economic austerity policies, check. opposing organized labor, check. suppressing votes by politicking a plan for early voting, uh, check. slashing public education budgets, chec
. ken cuccinelli, the republican candidate for governor, and since the shutdown he's sinking down 11 points in the polls this summer. but today his big response was to call in tea party senator rand paul who voted for the shutdown. see the pattern? their answer to rejection is to go even farther to the right. how's that for a winning strategy? let's put the fire out with more gas. good luck, republicans. joining me now is congressman john yarmouth, democrat from kentucky, and joan walsh from salon.com. thank you both for being on the show. congressman, after romney lost the election, the gop swore it was rebranding. but now we have ted cruz in iowa continuing with this myth campaign. what's going on here? >> well, reverend, it's amazing. john boehner november 7th after the election last year said we're finished with trying to repeal obama care. that battle's been won. that war's been won. now the republican party is acting like many of the japanese soldiers who kept fighting months and months and months after the japanese had surrendered. the war is over, but they are continuing to b
. of course, neither is anti sodomy laws, which is another focus of ken cuccinelli and rand paul, but that's another story for another day. the only thing i can figure here is it's hard for, quote, unquote, libertarians, right, to square their so-called love of freedom with an overbearing federal government that wants to tell women what to do with their bodies and essentially force them to give birth. so i think this eugenics thing is a way to say, well, if we don't force all women to have births, then the government is going to go to this place of eugenics. that's the only thing i can figure. it's a very bizarre situation. >> good try. erin, ken cuccinelli has already been struggling with female voters, in the most recent polls down a whopping 24 points. now he's got rapid paul going off about science fiction and the reason behind denying a woman control of her own body. is that a way to win back female voters? >> it's not the way to win back female voters. if you're looking at this double digit gap continuing to yawning and continuing to grow, these are people who supported personhood am
for mcauliffe. that's from ken cuccinelli. this hail mary as it described by our first read team is essentially to try to tie up what's happening with the health care website and some of the issues that's plaguing the administration in getting it off the ground with the race in virginia. >> absolutely. obama care continues to be dominant force right now in the race. both mcauliffe is running on it and supported it. you see on the right cuccinelli has already made it an issue saying vote for me if you don't like obama care. even obama has -- his team has said if mcauliffe does win, saying there's a referendum on obama care and people do like this law once going forward. >> the first read team going back to -- people should check it out, both thoughts on this. you're saying that the races, particularly new jersey and virginia, it's about minding the middle and the base, which is what your headline was, mark. >> tamron, the point we were trying to make, the sign of a really healthy party, when your candidate tries to appeal to the middle that the base is not being alienated. we're s

's the only democrat, he gets my vote the devil himself would be better on women's issues than ken cuccinelli. tom, i guess, this to me seems in virginia the ultimate test of what the tea party can do in a general election in a swing state. terry mcauliffe is a weak democratic candidate this is an off year election. it should favor the republican. all these conditionsist that should make this a winnable race for republicans. like you say, the fact that cuccinelli will lose this, is there any sign, are you hearing any seen from the republicans of rethinking their strategy, rethinking that convention and more broadly rethinking the leaning on the pea party? >> i think, lock, the party has become estranged from the business base, you have the lt. gov. not endorsing cuccinelli. a number of high profile republicans not supporting the ticket at this point. there is a lot of rethinking. remember the party is controlled by the nomination process which happens to be convention at this point. a very conservative central committee. so for all of this i think it will take a few years to sort out. this is

was out there campaigning for ken cuccinelli. andterry mccaulive is saying why didn't he disassociate himself from him? why didn't he have him out here. virginia has a lot of government employees. so cruz is a real problem for cuccinelli in virginia. >> interesting. one week from tomorrow. late-breaking news today. a federal judge has ruled the abortion restrictions passed by the texas legislature in july are unconstitutional, and will not take effect as planned on tuesday. the judge said the regulations violated the rights of abortion doctors to do what they think is best for their patients, and would reasonably restrict a woman's access to abortion clinics. the proposed restrictions were among the toughest in the nation, and gained national attention after wendy davis' high-profile filibuster. governor rick perry vows to fight the ruling. connie, what's your reaction to this? what is the -- the political -- how damaging is this to the conservative movement? >> well, it's particularly interesting, one of the p provision attention struck down because it would have prohibited doctors w
, it's idea eelg with a very conservative ken cuccinelli in blue new jersey, electability with the conservative and pragmatic christie leading the ticket. one is doing better than the other. there's an interesting poll that came out in "washington post" that said 64% support mcauliffe and voting against cuccinelli. this idealogical extreme rhetoric from the ticket in virginia has been such a turf off to the moderate voters, they base beingally handed this on a matter. >> why you at home, even if you know nothing about virginia politics, krystal can weigh in. this is a battle for the republican party's soul right now. and there's a contingent that called romney republican in name only and feels they need to push more and more extreme. there's a swath of america looking for moderation in the republican party. i had a conversation with senator mccain where he said publicly several times, we need moderates. so those two races are described showing us that tension playing out in real time. it will be significant. >> seeing the clintons and potus and rand paul reminded me the na
campaigning for ken cuccinelli -- >> perfect. >> -- a very right wing republican candidate for governor. >> perfect. >> i think his problem is the wisconsinites are really getting on to him. it's notable if that poll you mentioned mary burke, the announced candidate, a democrat, got 45%. kathleen vinhaut, a state senator who hasn't said she's going to run for governor, might get into the primary, got 44%. what you see is wisconsinites are clearly looking for an alternative, and my sense is that if scott walker keeps running around the country, campaigning for president, somebody might be able to spend some time in wisconsin and beat him. >> he clearly wants to be president of the united states. wants the nomination. in his book, walker made a point of trashing romney's campaign strategy. he says that romney did a lousy job of presenting a positive vision of free-market solutions to our nation's problem in a way that is relevant to people's lives." ruth, what do you think? do you think walker has laid out solutions? >> well, maybe he presents them with a smile on his face and it sounds p
